Dear Parents and Carers,
We shall be using an online ‘Learning Journey’ to record your child’s progress and development whilst in the Foundation Stage.  We hope this will be a shared document and your input is greatly valued.

By logging on to ‘Tapestry’ with a secure username and password, you will be able to view observations, photographs and videos of your child’s learning which will be built up throughout the year.  You can comment and even add observations of your own showing some of the exciting things your child does at home such as reading, baking, gardening, playing or outings.

A large part of our assessment is recorded using photographs and videos, often these include other children.  If you do not wish for your child to be in shared photographs on Tapestry, we are able to ‘lock’ them so only staff can view them; but please understand that this would greatly reduce the number of observations you will see of your child.  Also please understand that this is a journey of your child’s learning, therefore, please expect to see more observations some weeks than others.

Please can you fill in the form below.  Staff will then create an account for you and send instructions explaining how to access the site.  Please remember the email address and password you give us so that you can log on.

We are very much looking forward to sharing your child’s learning in this way but if you do have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to speak to us.

Kind regards

The Foundation Team
